Letter of Inquiry: William E. Simon Foundation

National BDPA vice president Paulette Johnson-Davis worked with BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) on a letter of inquiry to the William E. Simon Foundation. We are asking them for permission to submit a $25,000 grant proposal in support of BDPA's High School Computer Competition (HSCC).

The HSCC program celebrates its 25th year anniversary in 2010. Throughout the year, local chapters conduct SITES training programs for the youth in their communities. These programs are designed to expose our youth to the concepts of computers and give them the expertise to develop web applications. The program introduces our youth to the field of Information Technology. Our volunteers around the nation encourage these young people to seek higher levels of education, and groom many of them to become our next generation of IT professionals.

Wish us luck in the funding process!
